The article presents new arguments supporting the value of the “Cherubic Hymn” and the early Christian book “Pistis Sophia” as possible sources of V. Khlebnikov’s poem “Angels”. Thus, grammatical rhymes in the poem are associated with the Christian prayer, and the sound texture is correlated with the Gnostic spells. The author first draws a parallel between the images of the angels in the apocryphal Book of Enoch and Khlebnikov’s poem.
